“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Good clean hotel, friendly staff just a little far from things. Looks a lot better than many of the other hotels in the area, and it is easy to get to . Free breakfast and wi- fi. Will stay here again if I am in Santa Maria.

Room Tip: Good clean room, polite staff. Just kind of far from things.

We arrived late in the evening and were so warmly welcomed by the front desk. She not only gave recommendations for dinner, she had copies of the menus (and driving directions) that we could check out!

1bedroom suite was fairly spacious and there was space for the pullout sofa and pack n play in the living area for both our kids. The bathroom was not en suite to the bedroom, so we had to tiptoe to it in the middle of the night. But I imagine it would be considered a bonus if you were sharing the suite with adults, and they could go to the bathroom without traipsing through your sleeping area. The suite has a microwave and a fridge and a coffee maker, basic but perfectly adequate.

The bathroom is large, was spotless, and our kids loved the little rubber penguin they laid out! Fortunately the hotel also carried baby shampoo because we forgot that. We had absolutely no problem with noise even though we were on the ground floor and I usually cringe at the possibility of anyone waking my sleeping babies!

As others have mentioned, the entrance is easy to miss. You spot the property from the main street but you drive along and go "Eh??" Hang left and make as if you're entering from the back. It isn't that hard to find once you know what to expect.

We stayed for one night at Fairview Inn in Santa Maria. It was completely full on the Friday night we were there between Christmas and New Year's.

Plus
• Super-helpful staff who went the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. We arrived early, so we were allowed to put our bags in the conference room, unlocked by Ricardo. Our request for a room without connecting door was honored, and Ricardo, who seems to be able to do everything there, had a refrigerator brought to our room. We understand that soon all rooms will have refrigerators. All of the staff were extra-helpful.
• The wi-fi worked fine, but it was a bit of a nuisance to have to log in every time we went on line.
• They are proud of their hot breakfast which includes scrambled eggs, oatmeal, and sausages. With fresh fruit and a waffle-maker, the breakfast was good, but crowded, as noted below.
• Rooms were neat and clean. Bathrooms larger than usual.
• Quiet, little neighbor noise.
• Conveniently located near N. Broadway Highway 101 exit. Coming from the north, just after you pass the Fairfield Inn building, get into the middle lane used for turning and turn left on Roemer St.
• There is no stoplight because there is little traffic.
• Complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby replenished faithfully by Ricardo.
• Lots and lots of parking

Minus
• The breakfast room is a bit small for peak demand hours, probably because a lot of space is used for a wide sofa, a TV screen, and the space between the sofa and TV. The sofa could be replaced with tables, as in many other Fairfield Inns where we stayed. Also, extra tables could be set up near the coffee and tea area

The price makes this hotel a great value. We recommend the Fairview Inn as a very good deal in Santa Maria

Easy access from Hwy 101 on the north end of Santa Maria; convenient to Pismo Beach and other quaint beach communities. Staff was welcoming and very helpful. Room was very clean - as we always expect with Marriott properties - and the bed was very large and comfortable. We both used free Wi-fi with good speed. Breakfast selection and hours were great for us.

Excellent marriott reward stay. Wifi and breakfast included. Nice staff. Recognized elite status. Nice quiet clean rooms. A little confusing getting to it from main street outside. Must drive past and loop back.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived way before the 3:00 p.m. check-in time but they were very accommodating and had a room available for us. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. We opted to stay in Santa Maria instead of Santa Barbara because the rooms in Santa Barbara were very expensive....twice as much as I paid for Fairfield. Would definitely stay here again. And the free breakfast is a BIG plus!!!

Yes, clean room & comfortable bed... But, oh! SO loud!!! People running in hallways, up and down stairwells, and doors slamming ALL night! Really? The hotel desk was on the same floor & they didn't hear it? I finally called the desk at 3:55 a.m. In the morning, the shower plugged up. Lovely. TravelLodge has equally comfy beds, is on a busy street, and was quiet & peaceful with drains that worked.
